It seems you have to be a certain type of person to truly enjoy a hot springs.

Don't get me wrong - I liked the experience, but after 30 minutes I was ready to move on and you... read more

Overview

It's always a good day for a soak in the clear warm waters of the Ouray Hot Springs Pool! The hot springs of Ouray have been enjoyed since at least the 14th century when native Ute Indians used the naturally hot clear water for healing. Settlers came to the area in the late 1800's in search of gold and precious minerals, and many found comfort in the natural hot springs. The current swimming pool was constructed in the 1920's and has been a favorite destination ever since. Seven different springs supply the pool with water. At the source some of this water is 150 degrees! The pool consists of several sections maintained at different temperatures for different tastes. The hot section is approximately 104 degrees, and a soaking section, perfect for families and prolonged soaking, is typically 95 degrees, or so. The lap lanes and deep section are usually about 80 degrees in the summer and fall, and cooler than that in the winter months when there is snow on the ground. The Ouray Hot Springs Swimming Pool is an outdoor pool open all year. Many people enjoy the pool the most in the winter, after a day spent ice climbing, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, skating on the local ice rink (skates are available to rent at the Hot Springs Pool), or simply as a place to relax and enjoy the splendid scenery of the San Juan Mountains.

Beautiful pools, great staff. We saw a Rocky Mountain sheep on the cliff near the pools, very cool. Great place to relax.

Ouray has recently renovated their hot springs pool. We miss the old pool with the natural slate covering, the moss and the easier found vents ( for more hot water). But the new design is more modern and has it pluses as well. Their activity...More

We came to Ouray for a long weekend of relaxation and this was our primary hang out spot. It would be nice to have an adult only spot. It's sweet that it is a family friendly place, but Marco Polo got a little old.
